Wednesday is here and Deanne has a fun challenge for you over at the Papercraft Star. There is an amazing photo to inspire you along with the wonderful projects our design team has come up with. For my project I have made Mini File Folder Journals. These are so fun to make! I made my own template for the mini file folder. Using paper from My Mind's Eye along with vellum, ledger paper, and a paper bag for the inside pages, i sewed them into the mini file folder. A perfect little mini journal. These three are for a swap I'm in over at Your Paper Pantry, but I look forward to making more of these little beauties!
I hope you get a chance to play along this week and thank you for stopping by!
Hello all my blog land friends. Today is Wednesday and time for another challenge over at the Papercraft Star. This week I was given the opportunity to choose this week's challenge. I just love the soft look of pastels. I found this lovely photo to use for inspiration if you choose.
For my project I used digital images from The House Across The Bay's Shabby dot. I made a "PARTY" banner using a Spellbinder's die along with some chipboard letters.
Using flowers from Wild Orchid I add a mint and pink flower to the corner. A Martha Stewart doily sits under the chipboard "P" which I inked up using an aqua chalk ink.
For the "a" I used a sweet rosette from The Girl's Paperie along with coordinating die cuts.
The "R" is embellished using more of the die cuts from The Girls Paperie and coordinating flower. Using a frame from Tattered Angles I framed up the letter.
For the "T" I embellished using some lace from Webster's pages and a chipboard letter from Making Memories.
The "Y" is embellished with a handmade flower using some text paper.
I hope you have a chance to play along this week I would love to see what you create! Be sure to check out what our fabulous design team has created to inspire you. Thank you for stopping by.
Hello everyone. I'm back after a much needed brake. I have been so busy with volunteering at my son's elementary school. So many events were happening this week that we had to prepare for. By Friday at 1:00 p.m Field Day will be over and no more school events until the last day of school!!! I hope you are all having a good week and can play along this week over at the Papercraft Star. This week we challenge you to use a sun in your project. For my card I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I started with a yellow card stock as my base and added pattern papers from Authentique's Renew. The sentiment was typed out and printed on white card stock. I stitched each paper and matted them on coordinating card stock. That does it for my card. I look forward to seeing what you create. Don't forget if you haven't commented on last Friday's tutorial please do so for you chance to win a small giveaway! Our design team has done some beautiful work in this challenge so be sure to stop by the http://papercraftstar.blogspot.com/ blog to take a look. Thank you for stopping by.
Hello Wednesday. Yes that's right I'm back here in the middle of the week to let you know our challenge this week's challenge over at the Papercraft Star is to use a clock or watch in your project. For my card I busted out my new paper pad from Authentique called "Renew". These are not usually the colors I am drawn to, but these papers are just so super pretty. The base of this card is black cardsotck which I matted one of the patterned papers on it. I then used Baja Breeze cardstock to mat one of the bolder patterned papers in this pack. I then stamped an image from Stamper's Best which I colored using Copics and some Baja Breeze ink, onto some white cardstock. The clock on this card is one of Prima's new embellishments. A sweet little seam binding bow finishes off this card. The inspiration doesn't stop here thought. Our design team has some real beauties to show you. Be sure to stop by each of the ladies blogs and see what they have created. I love the way Allisa doesn't stop with designing a card front, she continues the design inside her cards too. Thank you Allisa for the inspiration and reminder that the inside likes to look pretty too:=)
Hello my blog land friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week! My mom is coming for a short visit and arrives later today! We'll see if I can persuade her to join in on this week's challenge over at the Papercraft Star. This week we challenge you to use a stamp on your project. Easy as can be. I think we can all do this right!?I I have to admit it wasn't until I started on this card that I realized I've been using digital images so much I found it a bit difficult to use a stamp. For my card I used paper from Prima's new Lyric line. I just layered different papers from the paper pack. I stamped a lacy boarder in Memento's Rich Cocoa. I then stamped the "Delightful" in Memento tuxedo black onto a journal tag and matted it on some certainly celery card stock. The last image I stamped it the clock with bee which I punched out using a SU circle punch. A bow and a little lace and my card is done. For more inspiration be sure to check out the rest of our very talented design team. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week! Anitra
